The maintenance of our shoes or work boots is an important element that influences their longevity. We don’t always think about it, but the few minutes we take to eliminate the bad smell inside, to clean them, or the place where we store them will allow you to keep them in a better state for longer.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your boots or shoes looking great for as long as possible!
SOME GENERAL MAINTENANCE TIPS
To keep your work shoes in good condition for a long time, it is important to take care of them and maintain them daily.
Here are a few important tips to keep your work boots and shoes in good condition for a long time :
- Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
- In order to maintain the footwear’s adherence, remove any encrusted mud or snow from the sole and any gravel or metal parts.
- Brush your shoes to remove stains and dirt or use a damp cloth to wash them, but forget the soap, because leather doesn’t like it!
- Let your shoes dry in a warm, dry and ventilated room, away from direct heat sources such as an electric baseboard. Avoid leaving them to dry in the sun.
- If they are made of leather, apply a quality grease or silicone recommended for leather to waterproof them.
- If they are made of synthetic fabric, clean them by hand with water and mild soap. The same drying instructions apply to leather.
HOW TO NEUTRALIZE PERSPIRATION ODORS
After a long day at work, our work boots or shoes may smell of perspiration. To eliminate this odor quickly, we recommend using our Sports Odor product.
Specifically designed to neutralize the odor of perspiration on fabrics, Sports Odor can be used in wet or dry footwear. To eliminate the odor, simply spray the product all over the boots or shoes (remember to treat all the way through) and let it dry naturally.
It is important to understand that every time you wear your shoes, you are sweating inside. The source of the sweat odor is therefore continually returning. Ideally, we recommend that you spray Sports Odeur every night after work, but some people only feel the need to spray every 2-3 days.
Unlike an air freshener that momentarily masks bad odors, Sports Odor eliminates the bad odor as soon as it touches the source. In addition, this product does not damage the fabrics and leaves a fresh smell in the shoes.
